People can create a new issue when they meet the [[RedmineRoles|roles and permissions]] configured by the Redmine Administrator (Role: Issue Tracking > Add Issues).
8 4 Mischa The Evil
When creating a new issue, one of the most important items is the [[RedmineIssueTrackingSetup#Trackers|tracker field]], which defines the nature of the issue. By default, Redmine comes with three different trackers: _bug_, _feature_, and _support_.
